Caleb will be five months old next wednesday so today I decided to let him try some cereal. He was too cute eating it. After the first couple of "bites" he couldn't get enough. I had just fed him about 10 minutes before giving him the cereal and he was scarfing it down like he hadn't eaten in days.

He sneezed a couple of times while he was eating and spewed cereal everywhere and he thought that was hilarious. He would get the biggest grin on his face and giggle a little. He kept putting his fists and his bib in his mouth. I made a little bit for him just to try and he finished that and was like freaking out because he wanted more so I made him some more and he watched every spoonful go into his mouth. I guess he is going to be a "Big Hungry" like his daddy! I just can't believe he is old enough to be eating cereal already!

"Mommy, this is where you put the spoon."

The year of weddings...

This has been the year of weddings for our family. We have been to four weddings since the beginning of August. We went to Uncle Jordan and Aunt Whitney's wedding on August 7 in Alabama. Randy, Hailey and I were all three in that wedding. It was so much fun and we were able to see a lot of family, some we haven't seen in almost seven years. Then we went to Amanda Young and David Miller's wedding. Amanda is a good friend of mine that I went to church with and also went to school with. That was such a sweet wedding and an awesome reception... breakfast for dinner and a doughnut hole cake! Then there was Hillary Johnson and Kyle Vernon's wedding. I worked with Hillary and she is probably one of the best friends I have ever had. She made such a beautiful bride. Out of all of the weddings I have been to and worked, she was the most glowing bride I have ever seen! Last, there was Josh Spencer and Leslie Vannoy's wedding. It was in the mountains of Virginia and it was beautiful! Josh and I have been friends since 5th grade and he is one of Randy's closest friends and we are so happy he met the perfect girl for him. Here are some pics of the weddings we have been to...

We are so happy for our friends and excited to see how God is going to use these new families for His kingdom!

Okay, so I decided to go ahead and write another post anyway. Hopefully the cleaning fairies will show up tonite while Randy and I are out on our date. And can I just say this date is much needed. It has been WAY too long! Okay, on to the randomness...
Ladies and gentlemen, we officially have an AWANA clubber in our house. Hailey started Puggles 2 weeks ago. I cannot believe she is old enough to be in AWANA. Nor can I believe that I am old enough to have a kid in AWANA...
-Pastor Tim encouraged us last Sunday to examine our lives and see what is one thing we can/need to get rid of and fast from it for two weeks. Mine was a no-brainer ...Facebook. After I made the commitment to not get on facebook for 2 weeks, I told Randy that maybe I should have went with a more realistic goal. But I can honestly say that I have not been on since last Sunday and it actually feels pretty good. I have spent much more time reading my Bible and it has been awesome. I have spent more time with my kids and that has been great. But most importantly, I have realized how enslaved to facebook I was. That may seem a little crazy but it is absolutely ridiculous how much time I was spending on it. While I do miss catching up with people and sharing cute photos and comments about the kids, it really feels good to not have to get on it. There. I said it. I can live without facebook =)
-All summer long Hailey has refused to wear flip flops (or "poop-plops" as she calls them.) She insisted that they hurt her feet and would not wear them. I gave in to this because Randy will not wear them either because they hurt his feet as well. Now that it is colder oustsde...guess what she wants to wear...that's right..."poop-plops." So I let her wear them...unless it's raining then she wears her rainboots, which really are her favorites.
-We are making huge strides in Hailey's fear department. For those of you who don't know, Hailey is seriously a big scaredy cat. I can honestly say I have never been afraid of her jumping off something and breaking a bone or climbing too high on something or anything of that nature. This summer she has been especially afraid of things. But I am pleased to announce that she will go down the big slide at church now. And if you take a look at the picture, you can see she has her hands in the air. HUGE! The coolest part about it is that there was no coaxing or bribing involved. One day she just decided she was going to do it, and she did it, and now she loves it. She still will not go on the swirly slide but that could possibly be because when I was pregnant the two of us got stuck in it and we didn't think we were going to make it out...but that story is for another day. Anyway, we are proud of her for giving it a try.
-Caleb is getting so big! He is such a sweet baby and is so snuggly! He has just in the last month or so developed a really cute personalty. He loves smiling and he loves "playing with Hailey.

I can't believe he is almost 5 months old! well, thats' all for now. I have a ton more I could write about but the cleaning fairies were a no-show last time =)

So stinkin' cute!

I really, REALLY need to make a new post about all that is going on in our family but I will probably have to wait until later to do it. Randy and I are actually going on a date tonite and I am so excited. But, I have a million things to do before I can even start getting ready. I just had to post this video because it is toooo cute! Caleb just started laughing this past month and he has THE cutest little giggle. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
